ROBERTS BOATS WITHOUT PLANS.
There are over 45,000 Bruce Roberts designed boats cruising the world so it
is very natural that we often receive requests for updated plans for our
designs that were built by other than the current owner.
We are always willing to assist those who have bought our boats in good
